The course focuses on issues relating to health, HIV/AIDS, gender, household economics, and education with particular attention to empirical analysis and methodologies to address fundamental theoretical and policy relevant questions. Students will take a hands-on approach using STATA with real data to replicate studies that are covered in class. Coursework includes: computer-based problem sets and writing exercises; an original paper based on computer analysis of survey data, and classroom participation.

There is no textbook or course pack. All readings are available electronically through the CTools web site for the course.
